of san francisco's mountain lake park. it's part of an effort to bring back the lake's natural ecology. mountain lake in the richmond district is part of the residio run by the national park service. it's goal is to to keep preserves the way nature made them. the four-acre pond is one of the few natural bodies of water in the city. over the years people have been dumping invasive fish, turtles and other creatures in the lake from home aquariums. now crews are using nets to scoop out some of the innovators, including at least 500 young carp, a large mouth bass, and that's just so far. >> good day to go to the lake if you bundle up. >> that's right. a little bit warmer today but it will continue throughout the middle of the work week. headed outside it was frosty in the sierra nevada this morning with 0 in truck tee and 4 at the tahoe valley airport this morning. plenty of lows across the
9:49 am
sacramento valley. the frost advisory has been lifted, allowed to expire. and locally back home you see it's pretty nice and sunny here. the average high this time of year in oakland is 64. we are shy of that. probably by tuesday there will be more seasonable temperatures around the bay. live temperature hd. a little fog was withnous the early morning hours but right now it's quiet out there. we will look for the winds to be more of a southerly component today. out ahead of the next cold front. we will show did you to you and see whether or not it will bring us rain. everyone has warmed up into the 40s. of course, that's relative. 50 half moon bay. many locations dropped into the 30s this morning from the coast to hollister and san jose. our east bay was even colder. we did manage numbers below freezing in our north bay valleys. but we are looking at a warmer night tonight, despite the chill this morning and 9 degrees of
9:50 am
cooling compared to yesterday. the numbers going in the opposite direction. so we will look for some changes, though, in our seven-day outlook. starting with today. with numbers coming up anywhere from two to four degrees and that will allow for us to retain some of that heat tonight. i think some high clouds are going to move in ahead of a cold front. and with that cloud cover the radiational cooling not quite as intense so that will allow for a warmer night tonight. and showers look to return to parts of the bay area by the end of the work week. so here's a look at our pacific satellite picture. you will notice the cold front to the north of us. it will begin to shift a little bit further south tomorrow. but today it's weak high pressure building in that keeps us sunny. and the numbers beginning to edge up a little bit. but southerly winds out ahead of the next front will allow for more warming in the days ahead. notice the front continues to stay to the north. it wants to sag a little south right on through tuesday but really not going to make it
